Step out of the airport in style with an ensemble inspired by Chrissy Teigen's latest travel-chic look. Chrissy wore a silk blazer with a coordinating ribbed top, high-waisted light wash jeans, nude ankle-strap sandals and a large studded weekender. Chrissy kept it simple with a mostly neutral color palette, minimal accessories and her hair half-up in a topknot. This outfit is perfect for when you have little time to change between your arrival and your destination — I can see this being perfect for happy hour, dinner or an informal meeting right after your flight.
